You may have heard of team based learning (TBL), a form of instruction that utilizes pre-class preparation, team learning and assimilation and instructor led application exercises.  Medical education is beginning to embrace TBL, particularly as we learn of the various learning styles of our students and residents and begin to move away from the traditional lecture.  An excellent resource for TBL is the Team Based Learning Collaborative.  The site provides resources, research and conferences dedicated to TBL.  Check it out and consider trying the TBL approach with a topic or two in your curriculum.   This may be just be the ticket to making didactics fun and interesting for both residents and faculty.
